|Vogue 1198 pattern cover.|
I had about 10 options for her to choose from in my stash, not thinking that she would ever choose my favorite. It was a blue-grey wool from Ralph Lauren- very high quality. I had earmarked that one for ME. But, what can I say- the girl has good taste. She chose that one. When I told her that I really didn't think she was "ready" for it, that she needed to be older and more responsible, and that I really wanted that one for myself, she said "But I REALLY want it, Mommy". Oh well.

How do I love thee, Vogue 1198? Let me count the ways.
|Back with awesome belt.|
|Close-up of zippers and collar.|
2. Zippers. Bad-ass angled front zipper. Adds attitude. Don't mess with me, can't you see my zipper isn't straight? Zippered pockets. Great for keeping things safe.
|Plenty warm for snowy days.|
And no, I am not getting any commissions from Vogue or Sandra Betzina. I just love this pattern! I'm sure that I'll be making it again, and again, and again.
